FRESH from their first ever appearance on the Late Late Show, Cork indie favourites The Frank & Walters have pencilled in De Barra’s in Clonakilty as one of just six venues in their much anticipated upcoming Irish tour.
The Franks will be performing their latest single ‘Indie Love Song’, which is released aptly enough on Valentines Day, and material new and old for their loyal West Cork fanbase.
The song is from their forthcoming album, Greenwich Mean Time, due out in March.
In terms of Irish indie-pop royalty, they don’t come more regal than The Frank & Walters.
There are few bands that can compare in terms of quality pop tunes, great albums, an international audience and an independent spirit that has seen them watch any number of fads and scenes come and go.
Their legacy will always be intact thanks to bona-fide indie classics down through the years such as ‘After All’, ‘This is Not a Song’ and ‘Fashion Crisis Hits New York’. However, the band have steadfastly refused to sit on their laurels, continually writing and releasing new music with their inimitable trademarks of hope and optimism.
Once referred to in the international music press as “Ireland’s answer to The Smiths”, they have instinctively produced finely crafted indie pop for over 20 years and are regarded both home and abroad as having bottled the formula.
They play De Barra’s, Clonakilty on Friday April 20th.
